.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will dominate the weather

remain out of the south today and tomorrow, but will be light and
easily overwhelmed by terrain driven winds. Thursday the general
winds will turn northwesterly again with a cold front moving into
the area. Overnight, expect poor humidity recoveries in thermal
belts, which will be strengthening. Thursday there will be
thunderstorms, which will cause erratic winds, small hail, and
lightning in the area.

National Weather Service Missoula MT
446 PM MDT MON MAY 2 2016

Forecast is based on ignition time of 1200 MDT on May 03.
If conditions become unrepresentative, contact the National Weather
Service.

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure over the burn on Tuesday will slowly weaken
Wednesday through Thursday over the burn site. On Tuesday and
Wednesday, winds will be mostly light and variable, with a narrow
afternoon window of upcanyon (south) winds. Isolated showers and
thunderstorms creep into the area on Wednesday afternoon and may
create brief gusty winds (if any shower develops). Thursday winds
will be strongest of this week, particularly after 1500 LT, when
showers and thunderstorms could produce erratic 25 mph wind gusts
on the fire. Even if showers don`t develop on Thursday, a distinct
wind shift a from southerly to northerly is likely after 1800 LT.

.TUESDAY...

* Sky/Weather.........Mostly sunny.
* CWR (> 0.10 Inch)...0 percent.
* Max Temperature.....78-83.

  in the afternoon. Brief, variable wind gust to 15 mph if any
  shower develops near the burn.
* Mixing Height.......300 ft agl increasing to 11000 ft agl in
  the afternoon.
